Buttermilk Granola Muffins from Cosmopolitan Cornbread

To begin, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Fill a standard muffin pan with cupcake papers. Set it aside for now.

In a bowl, combine 2 cups of whole wheat flour, a cup of brown sugar, 3/4 teaspoon of salt, a teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg. To those, add a cup of your favorite granola. I am using a chocolate granola that I get in the bulk section of my local Earth Fare.
